What is #zapfic? Well I was the first to use the hashtag, so I guess I invented it, and I get to decide what it means.

#zapfic is a very short story written in less than 240 characters*.

No restrictions on how you post it to the steem blockchain. You can post it to steemit using steempeak, palnet.io, steemit.com, busy, partiko or anything else you want to use (you can even just post a story in the comments - but if you create STEEM post for your ZAPFIC using the hashtags #palnet, #creativecoin, #neoxian or #marlians) you’ll get a 50% upvote in STEEM plus upvotes from each my Tribe accounts too)!

Try to ensure you tell as complete a story as you can.

This weeks prompt is : bow

You can interpret the prompt as you wish (the story does NOT have to contain the word “bow” in it)

  • Use the following hashtags (so you can benefit from my upvotes from the tribe accounts): #palnet, #creativecoin, #marlians. I can upvote you with four different accounts - so if you use those three hashtags you'll earn the tokens pal, marlians and ccc as well as Steem)

  • The story must be no more than 240 characters in length - use a character counter to check (here is one: https://wordcounter.net/)

  • The story must be your own work, and previously unpublished

  • If you post a photo (you don't have to, there are no "points" for photos, it is all about the story) please make sure you quote the source. If it is yours, say so!

Thank you! and good luck!

The NEW @SteemFiction book has been published! Currently available on Amazon for the Kindle it is now available as a paperback too!

Dead Silence

9 tales of MURDER from some of your favourite STEEM writers!

Check out the trailer for the book!

I have a story in it called The Still Blood-Soaked Path

A YouTube documentary film-maker visits a remote island to investigate the horrific murder of a young woman, and the subsequent suicide of her killer almost thirty years ago. But was the young lover really responsible for the brutal slaying of his girlfriend? And if not who was?

I had a comment left on one of my freewrites and I have to say, it made my day!

“Hey I got the book and want to tell you how much I enjoyed your story! Loved the twist at the end… you somehow nearly always manage to produce an unexpected twist... Love the care you take with your characters, intertwining them.” @owasco


@steemfiction - Voices In The Darkness, 8 tales by 8 STEEMains, published NOW on Amazon kindle!

Voices In The Darkness is now ALSO available as a paperback!

If you want a taster of what is in the book, the video below shows me reading the first 900 words, or so, of my story, The Tell-Tale Dead


@steemfiction - we publish fiction written by Steemians

Thanks for your entry! :)

Usefulness aside, I think I prefer a bow to a railcar. Let's see if I can zap in this week...but not today...not today...

The good thing about bow is it has lots of different meanings!
